3 Easy Ways to Optimize Your Blood Sugar

metabolic efficiency nutrition sport nutrition Jan 03, 2024
1. Eat at least 1 full handful (as defined from your wrist to your fingertips) of protein each time you eat a meal.
 
  • Protein is amazing at controlling blood sugar and most people do not eat enough of this wonderful macronutrient. It’s difficult but try to always focus on starting your meals and snacks with a quality protein source.
 
 
2. When eating carbohydrates, choose more nutrient-dense, higher-fiber options. 
 
  • Fiber helps support optimal blood sugar so opt for foods such as spinach, kale, broccoli, asparagus, blueberries, raspberries, apples, quinoa, brown rice and steel-cut oats.
 
 
3. Move after you eat. 
 
  • Any type of movement, such as walking, can help lower the meal-associated increase in blood sugar. It only takes about 15 - 20 minutes to see positive benefits.
